“A family movie both the Bradys and the Mansons could adore” – Rolling Stone
It’s 1962—the ’50s are out and change is in the air. Baltimore’s Tracy Turnblad (Ricki Lake), a big girl with big hair and an even bigger heart, has only one passion—to dance. After landing a spot on a popular dance show, this gutsy and talented teen sensation rallies against racial segregation and sizeism.
Directed by John Waters
Length 92 Minutes
